Photo Essay: Football Team Helps Prayer Garden Blossom in Bronx


Fordham’s Office of Campus Ministry kicked off its new Pedro Arrupe Faith and Justice program on Saturday, April 20 with a joint service project with the men’s football team.

Team members and other volunteers dug up, ripped out and emptied a lot choked with overgrown weeds, shrubs and trees next to a convent at St. Martin of Tours church in Belmont. With the help of donations from the Fordham Jesuit community, Emerald Tree Care Company, Frank Bulfamante & Sons, and Ferrara Brothers, the volunteers transformed the space into a tranquil prayer garden open to the whole community.
